Här är axplock ur en intressant enkät som kommer från ett antal klubbar i Milwaukee, USA. Ganska mycket samma frågeställningar som vi har här…
A little over a year ago, a group in Milwaukee got together to survey racers in order for area clubs to improve their programs. About 285 people – skippers, crew, representatives of 4 clubs, ODs and PHRF sailors participated in a 30 question in-depth interview.
While it is specific to a region, it is a large, highly representative sample of racing sailors, and I’ll bet that some of the lessons in Milwaukee will apply elsewhere. So here are some highlights.
Visst borde man i något läge ta tag i detta? Nu snackas det massa på bloggar, bryggor och i enskilda klubbar, men det hade varit bättre om vi fick klara besked kring vad som hindrar folk från att kappsegla. Vem är närmast sörjande? SSF, SHF eller VKSF? Idéer?
